I started working at the MakerBot retail store about a year ago. I’m a visual artist at heart, and working at here allows me to express my talent through a cool new medium. I’ve been a big fan of our photo booth from the beginning; it’s such a fun feature of the store. I got the idea to print out a hollow bust of myself and insert a small LED light as a way of boosting its dramatic nature. It’s so amusing that way!Be sure to visit Maggie at the NYC MakerBot retail store at 298 Mulberry Street. And don’t forget to peruse a seemingly endless amount of ready-to-print content at Thingiverse, the 3D design community for discovering, printing, and sharing 3D models.
A MakerBot Operator Improves on a 3D Model Everyone knows the MakerBot community does its research, so our MakerBot Retail Operators need to know 3D printing inside and out. It’s no surprise that Maggie Dilley from the MakerBot retail store in New York City has seen a lot of 3D prints and designs. From the functional to the downright funny, she is well versed in MakerBot Thingiverse and beyond. We asked Maggie to give us a bit of background on herself and her favorite 3D print, made on a MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer.
